Pet Pakz Cat Subscription Box Review – March 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

petpakz-march-2016-box

Pet Pakz is a monthly subscription box for pets.  You can opt for a dog box (choose your dog size), a cat box, or a small animal box (select gerbil/hamster or rabbit/guinea pig).  You can also combine pet types with higher tier subscriptions (i.e., get a combined cat/rabbit box) and opt for a bimonthly box if monthly is too often for you.  This is a review of the cat option.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.) 

The Subscription Box: Pet Pakz (for cats)

The Cost: $28 per month for the bronze level (3-5 items for one type of pet); $39 a month for the silver level (6-8 items for up to two types of pet); $50 a month for the gold level (9+ items for three types of pets); save with longer subscriptions.  This review is for the “bronze” level.

The Products: Toys, treats, and supplies for your dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, gerbil, or hamster.

Because Pet Pakz is customizable and you can select different types of animals, there isn’t a traditional information card.  If you have a dog or cat individual or combined subscription, your items will be circled on the card.  (Small animal items are not listed on the card.)

Hunter Smart Cat Toy Set (Summer Ladybug and Flower) – Value $5 (?)

These are from Germany (or at least, there’s a lot of German writing on the package).  This brand is new to me, which is always nice.  (There are a few brands that tend to dominate subscription boxes for cats and dogs.)  However, I can only find it for sale overseas so the price is a bit of a guess.

Kong CuteSeas Dolphin – Value $6.50

I didn’t know Kong made cat toys.  I’ve tried about every one of their dog toys (a few of which even hold up to the Nyx treatment).  This is a little large for a cat toy but Sneaky seems to like wrestling with larger toys so that works.

Multipet Duck Cat Toy – Value $6.50

This makes a “quack, quack, quack” sound when it gets shaken.  It definitely got the cats’ interest, though they were a little afraid to get too close…

PureBites Freeze Dried Chicken Breast Cat Treats (0.6 oz) – Value $2.40

I like freeze-dried treats because they have a single ingredient – no fillers, dyes, etc.  My cats have had this brand before (different flavor) and they seem to like the texture of these fairly well.

Supercat Catnip Crumples (40 sheets) – Value $5.61

This is something else we’ve received before.  They are little sheets of paper with catnip particles on them.  When you crumple the paper, the catnip scent is released.  These must be fresher than the last ones I got because Monkey was actually pretty interested in these.

And now for the kitties:

Of course you can barely see his face, but I was happy to get a photo of Madison without laser eyes.

Hey, I’m just happy Mr. Kitty opened his eyes for a picture.  (He has eye issues that popped up late last year as a side effect of his IBD medication.  Don’t worry, he is being monitored by the vet.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $26 for the March Pet Pakz for cats box.  That is pretty close to the cost of the box and may actually meet it since I had to estimate one value.  The items were hits with my cats and the treats are made in the USA.  It is also neat that you can get items for a small animal and/or combine small animal items with dog or cat items.  (There have been times in my life when I had a dog, several cats, a guinea pig or rabbit, and a bunch of hamsters, although not lately…)

What do you think of the March Pet Pakz box?  Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. What a great “Kit Kat Klub” you have there! Love seeing the action photos with the toys. This looks like a nice, well rounded subscription and a good value if, as you say, they can combine the feline with the canine–fun for all.

  2. I read all of your cat box reviews just to look at the pictures. Adorable!

  3. So happy that the items were evaluated by cats. And love the cat photos. More please!!

  4. The cat boxes reviewed on MSA never seem to give great value. I just pull these up for Ragan’s gratuitous cat photos.

  5. What a cool idea! I haven’t seen a pet box that has options for other types of pets (besides cats and dogs). My sis and nieces have a rabbit and cats. I’ll have to let them know about this sub.

  6. I only sub to Catlady box right now since I don’t have a cat right now (it has stuff for the cat lover as well as for the cats). But I read all the animal sub box reviews & live vicariously through all of Ragan’s pet photos! Purrfect portraits of everyone! Mr. Kitty looks especially good today. Wondering if Nyx is jelous of all these boxes coming in for the cats? 🙂

    • Nyx gets like 7 boxes a month. The dog boxes, for some reason, just come later in the month. So she is doing fine!

      (You have no idea how many pictures I take to get ones I deem worthy of sharing. Probably fewer than 5% show up here…)

  7. Ragan, I don’t have cats (allergies), but I always read your reviews because not only are your cats beautiful, but you have the best pics of them enjoying their goodies! My son’s cat doesn’t respond to catnip, plus, he’s a weirdo, or I would gift this to him. Looks like fun! Mr. Kitty is so gorgeous and orange cats are my fave! Great review! 🙂
